Ibisrider, if you don't trade with mkzhang, I still have the original muffler with under 800 mi on it. Just let me know...

I'd rather not do a trade since having the original part will be important when it's time to trade up to my next Aston Martin.

I take delivery of my new (to me) S next week. I'll need to get some hours on it before I decide if the muffler can stay.

Which GT are you buying? The black with yellow calipers? I thought you wanted a DB9 next?

I found the list of Aston muffler loudness that someone posted a year ago or so. Don't know if it was subjective or meter rated but here was his opinion:
S>Sports>12.25 up 4.7>4.3>early 4.7

I just bought a V8V and drove my friends V8VS and now I have exhaust envy. The S exhaust is perfect....sounds great.

Does anyone know how to get a S muffler?

You can order it from Aston Martin or try to find one used somewhere. I found mine on ebay for $650 and it now sounds exactly like the V8VS that you heard. Best mod ever!

Interesting thread. I have a V8VS, and the sound, to me, is absolutely perfect. Low and throaty in the low RPM band, high and screaming in the upper ranges. Plenty of burble and mechanical notes on over run. I'll make a video.

Technical question:
Tim states that he has pulled fuses 15/22 on both mufflers.
I have pulled only #15 on my 2014 V8V as per the owner's manual.
Is each muffler controlled by a different fuse?
Thanks

Larry - There is only one fuse to my knowledge. It was 22 on some of the older V8Vs and then switched to 15 in some of the later models. I am not 100% sure when it switched - I think sometime around MY11.

May I suggest a Fabspeed X-Pipe replacement for your secondary cats... The sound is wonderful with my 2013 Vantage S set-up. Not too loud... perfect IMO.

What's the difference between the S and non S exhaust? I have a regular 13 because I wanted a manual. But I would like a meatier sound.

I believe there is less packing in the S muffler. Don't know if the internal plumbing is different between the 2. I believe they look the same on the outside so you must check the little model number plaque tack welded on it to make sure it really is an S muffler. All I know is it really sounds differently even though it doesn't look any different.
